    Yes folks, it's that time of the month again, and again DUK wheel Baroness Barbara Young out for her monthly doom and gloom report. Arguably the biggest hypocrite and most dangerous person in the UK diabetes business, and yes it is a business, in which DUK Young's charity is doing very well. DUK promote a dangerous diet that keeps the big pharma bosses happy and ensures Young keeps her £100 grand a year job. Everyone's happy except the mutilated diabetics. So, DUK talk, talk, and talk, but never any action that could lead to improvement for millions of diabetics, that's DUK for you.

    "Amputations because of the condition - which have soared to an all-time high of 135 a week - could be unnecessarily costing the taxpayer, after experts warned that four in five cases could be prevented with better patient care.

    The procedures are also likely to increase in the near future, with the amount of diabetics in Britain set to rocket from 3.9 million to five million within ten years.

    Diabetes UK said that the rate is rising due to the massive increase in number of people developing the condition, which is regularly linked with being overweight.

    A record 21,125 diabetes-related amputations were completed between 2011 and 2014 in England - seven more a week than the three previous years.

    But according to the charity, 80 per cent of these amputations could be avoided if the sufferers were given correct care"

    Type two diabetic-low carb diet (50 carbs per day) and two 500mg Metformin pills per day. Apart from diagnosis HbA1c almost 12-all HbA1c results none diabetic. For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !
